For those of you attending the fantastic AIS Region 13 meeting, there are going to be a lot of irises for sale in the Silent Auction and most of them from the highly successful Portland Convention. The Convention conveners are also bringing a box of the Convention irises for the British Columbia Iris Society and we will also probably sell them first come first served at the meeting. There will be lots of good things happening for the Irisoholic at this meeting.
